Top Customer Reviews
I mainly use this tape for reinforcement of box seams—the seams that need strength so the box doesn't fall apart in shipment. I use this in conjunction with the thinner and brown Scotch Lightweight Shipping Packaging Tape, 6 pack, for secondary reinforcement of not as important seams.
If you sell things on the internet, it can get pricey to get packing tape so you have to learn where to spend your money wisely, and know which tape to use for the right purpose.
*** UPDATE ***
It seems this new version of packing tape is fine on paper boxes, but when you put tape on tape, it doesn't stick. That's really annoying. Minus two stars.
"Did I receive a defective product?" Was the first thing I said when I used this tape.
When I buy tape I have one primary expectation. The expectation that the tape will effectively stick and not peel off. Given that this tape is labeled shipping/packaging tape I expect for it to effectively stick to common shipping materials. That is not the case! I often use bag mailers to ship items and this tape very easily peels off. This is a major issue since loose tape hanging off of a package or a package coming partially untapped could contribute to the package not arriving safely to its destination. Loose tape could contribute to a package getting caught in a conveyor during sorting at a postal office and getting ripped open. It could also result in the shipping label falling off in shipping (I tape on my shipping labels, instead of directly adhering them). In order to combat this issue I have to use substantially more tape when packaging items (at least when used on plastic mailers), which results in my packages looking much more sloppy and to me having to spend longer taping up each item I ship.
In fairness this tape does seem to work better on cardboard boxes.
I am very annoyed by how much extra tape I am having to use to package items compared to before because it makes my packages look more sloppy, their less secure, and because I specifically bought this tape because of its a better price per inch than the heavy duty shipping tape. The better price per inch does not make up for the significantly larger amount of tape I now have to use for shipping. I will likely have to buy a different type of tape for shipping due to this tapes unacceptable adherence properties.
This tape is weaker than some other tapes I have used, but I bought it with the expectation of it being somewhat weaker than I am used to. Overall its strength I felt was acceptable for all, but heavy duty applications. I was satisfied with its strength and felt the way the tape was labeled gave consumers a reasonable expectation of tensile and tear strength. Potential buyers should also note that this tape is in small roles and should make sure it will fit any taping apparatus they might intend to use it with prior to purchase.
My recommendation is to buy and use Scotch heavy shipping tape instead. I am very surprised by the large number of positive reviews this product has received. Maybe many of the reviewers use it exclusively for boxes, which it performs notably better on. The other possibility is maybe I received a defective product. I wish I could get my money back so I could use it to buy a better tape product.
The tape is easy to transfer from the dispenser to the item being taped and with a slight twist of the hand it cuts off without much if any waste. While other tapes perform o.k., this Scotch is just a huge notch above in quality. We have rolls of tape all around the house in case we need some here or there and that, for us, works perfectly instead of trying to determine 'what did I do with the tape?' or do we have any tape. As you might expect I highly recommend this tape with no exceptions.
